*Backcountry Tour With Fellskies or Snowshoes

Customized backcountry tour is made just for you and your group! Tour will take a place at Tromsø, Lyngen or Kilpisjärvi areas as desired. Also starting time is customized according to your wishes. There are several magnificent places for both, new beginners and the ones seeking for a challenge. During the tour you have a chance to learn how to use a map and compass on a backcountry, how to build a snow shelter for our lunch break and how to prepare the lunch outdoors.

Tour is made either by fellskies or snowshoes. Fellskies are very popular skis here in Norway. They are a bit wider than normal cross-country skis and because of that, they are suitable for tours outside the tracks. If you know how to cross-country ski, you are going to master fellskies on a backcountry as well!

Before the tour you will get some questions related to the tour, so that it can be customized according to your wishes and desires. Also the meeting point is customized depending where the tour takes a place.

I’m looking forward to head to the backcountry with you!
